The method behind the madness:-
How all this began...
Being a mum is the best thing in the world (you can be a dad, uncle, aunt or even a friend of a family who has children to know exactly what I mean).
Not only am I proud of my children and find great pleasure in watching them grow, but also that it helps bring out my own inner child.
I'm not the only person in the world to feel this way either.
In fact almost EVERYONE I know has an inner child screaming to get out, it's just that being around kids makes it easier to let them out.
You don't even have to have kids to feel this way. So many times I've been out with my kids playing ball or something and total strangers, just for that one microsecond, playfully intercept and pass the ball back before composing themselves and continuing on their way. The ONLY difference being they are now wearing a smile and I know have that warm fuzzy feeling deep down inside.
Why, if we really want to have fun and play, do we have to suppress it unless there's a child around?
It's time to stand up and be counted.
Admit we want to play too and stop using our kids as an excuse.
This is OUR playground!!!
Of course we're still going to buy most of this stuff for a child because we always wanted one or whatever, but it's the first step to admitting you're a big kid too and who knows? Someday you'll be able to step up and shout out what you really mean.
I'M BUYING THIS ONE FOR ME!!!
So there you have it.
